Description (last modified by russellm)

In the last part of tutorial 4, it mention that in order to get the vote() view working, just change:

return HttpResponseRedirect(reverse('poll_results', args=(p.id,))) 


However in the vote() view, the exception handling code also needs to change to reference the new poll_detail.html template and change poll object name 'poll' to 'object' since the poll_detail.html was changed to use the generic view.

This is more of a clarification and nothing really wrong with the tutorial.

Unless I'm misunderstanding you, this advice is already given in the paragraph before the one you reference:

The vote() view is still required. However, it must be modified to match the new context variables. In the render_to_response() call, rename the poll context variable to object.
